Everton 1-0 Chelsea (ft)

Goals: Steven Naismith, 45' (1-0)

Everton claim their first win of the season thanks to Steven Naismith's header before half time.

After a slow-paced first half, the second 45 minutes were frenetic and incident-packed, but Chelsea's failure to find the right final pass, coupled with a resolute Everton defence, meant the single goal was enough to win the game.

Lineups:

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Osman, Barry, Mirallas, Naismith, Barkley, Jelavic. Subs: Robles, Heitinga, Oviedo, Deulofeu, McCarthy, Gueye, Stones.

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Schurrle, Hazard, Mata, Eto'o. Subs: Essien, Lampard, Torres, Oscar, De Bruyne, Schwarzer, Cahill.
